  1. Perceptions of vaccine efficacy, illness, and health among inner-city parents.

    Article - En anglais

    A resurgence of measles in the past decade has focused attention on the limitations of current immunization programs, particularly for inner-city, low-income populations.

    As part of a larger study of immunization rates, we discussed perceptions of disease severity and vaccine efficacy, as well as the prioritization of the tasks of parenthood, with 40 parents of infants living in inner-city Baltimore to discover their beliefs about immunization.

    Vaccines were considered only partly successful; susceptibility to chiclcenpox after vaccination was repeatedly cited as evidence of vaccine failure.
